The G.Guard load arrester is a heavy-duty fall arrest block for protecting equipment that is suspended at height.

300kg, 500kg and 1000kg versions available.

  • G.Guard Lifting Safety
500kg MWL



  • Shock absorbing brake cushions the fall
  • High grade galvanised steel rope is fitted as standard on all models. Stainless steel cable is available as an option. Fitting stainless steel rope may affect the MWL, see table below for details.

Load arrestors provide a secondary safety back-up for overhead loads, used in conjunction with a primary lifting device or support, such as a hoist or fixed anchorage. If the primary support fails, the load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the load and, more importantly, protecting people below.

Globestock’s G.Guard load arrestors have a high-strength retractable rope that extracts and retracts, following the movement of the load. This means the G.Guards can be fitted to equipment that needs to be moved (dynamic loads), as well as to non-moving (static) loads.

G.Guards are a cost-effective, straight-forward way of managing risk. They are being increasingly utilised under EN 17206:2020 as an effective protective measure and safeguard.
